H. H. Booth


LET me hear Thy voice now speaking,

Let me hear, and I’ll obey;

While before Thy Cross I’m seeking,

Oh, chase my fears away!

Oh, let the light now falling

Reveal my every need;

Now hear me while I’m calling,

Oh, speak, and I will heed!

Speak, Saviour, speak!

Obey Thee I will ever;

Now at Thy Cross I seek

From all that’s wrong to sever.


Let me hear, and I will follow,

Though the path be strewed with thorns;

It is joy to share Thy sorrow,

Thou makest calm the storm.

Now my heart Thy temple making,

In Thy fulness dwell with me;

Every evil way forsaking,

Thine only I will be.


Let the blood of Christ forever

Flood and cleanse my heart within:

That to grieve Thee I may never

More stain my soul with sin.

Farewell to worldly pleasure,

Farewell to self and pride;

How wondrous is my treasure,

With Jesus at my side.
